Hello Kafkateers!

We are super excited to invite you to Kafkathon 2020, August 12-14!

Kafkathon 2020 allows participants to learn, build, and teach something new. Participants will compete to solve a challenge and they will have 48 hours to complete it. The Kafkathon will be open to both individuals and representatives of organizations.

To effectively provide assistance and mentorship throughout the event, we prefer participants to work in teams (we suggest teams of five people). If you are an individual looking to join a team before the event, please contact the Community Team at [email protected].
